That bowing can be easily solved if he adds two more legs in the middle of the smaller piece. How thick is that plywood? If you check out my eyefinity desk build I'm not using any legs just 2x4s screwed into studs. I ended up having to add another 2x4 in the front cause it was bowing too. I used 3/4ths thick plywood for mine. Any ways looks good! I like the idea of the lifted platform but with those U2312Ms don't the stands adjust?

I looked at MDF but I'm looking for a unique finish and paying the premium for MDF wasn't worth it for me since I'll be adding my own finish. So just basic plywood works for now, but thanks for the suggestion, someone else attempting this might be better off using MDF if they aren't going to do a Carbon Fiber Wrap like I want to do.

I used 3/4ths thick plywood for mine. Any ways looks good! I like the idea of the lifted platform but with those U2312Ms don't the stands adjust?

I used 5/8" Plywood. And as for the bowing, just measured it, the main platform sags about 1/8" in the middle, and the top platform sags 3/8" in the middle.

I'm still thinking of switching to 3/4" Plywood, and I probably will add 2 more supports on either side of my Receiver but centered on the the second platform rather than all the way at the back. I'll also probably add 1 or 2 more supports for the main platform, then add cross-members about 8" above the floor between the 5 or 6 legs.

They're actually U2212HM's, and they do have an adjustable stand, currently they're at their lowest height. With the lifted platform I have just over 3" between my receiver and the platform to allow for some heat dissipation from the receiver and the monitors are at perfect height. My eye level is almost exactly 3/4 up the screen itself on the monitor. And I found something weird, when I do Eyefinity in Landscape mode, I get no flickering on the monitor connected via DVI, but in portrait mode, I get flickering on the 3rd monitor. So AMD must have some taken a shortcut for Eyefinity in combination with screen rotation that adds screen tear, kind of sad on AMD's part in my opinion.



So I'm currently 95% sold on 3M Carbon Fiber Wrap, but unsure on color:

Definitely the black or graphite carbon would look the best IMO.

Great desk, will be cool to see the carbon finish.

Thanks, and I still have some "structural" changes to make and still need to add the top shelf. It's definitely a work in progress lol.

I still have to paint my 2x4's black but I think maybe carbon fiber wrap is a good alternative. How do you plan to stick the wrap onto the wood? Does it just stick to anything when heated up?

Well the plywood I used has little 3/4" holes in it that are maybe 1/8" deep in a grid across both side so first I'll fill those with wood glue, then put a couple layers of primer on, light sanding, then the wrap. I don't want to risk wrapping the whole thing to have it bubble in spots because it doesn't hold to the rough surface of the wood.

I've never actually used the carbon wrap, so if anyone else has any tips, I'm happy to hear them.

Desk is simple yet effective, I love it. Do you have any wobble with the main legs? Also, how much (roughly) did this run you time and money wise?

Thanks, and there is a little wobble, but I have to actually try to push on the desk. I think I'm at about $60 right now.

Alright cool thanks for the feedback. Did you ever think about replacing the plastic tubing with metal ones? I am looking to build my next desk and love what you have here, but I would feel much more comfortable with metal tubing.

Any plans to add shelving or drawers to your desk?
